Talking at a virtual press conference on Tuesday, Chris Morris said that Samson is above just a young skipper, regardful:

“I’m obviously quite lucky I’ve got a very good relationship with Sanju; I have batted with him at Rajasthan and in Delhi. I don’t see him as a young captain, I see him as a seriously good cricket player, who’s got a great cricket brain. For a guy who can keep wickets and field, he’s seen different angles, different approaches from the back and the side. So, you know, I’m sure he’s got some good ideas. I’m sure he’s got some interesting things that we can discuss when it comes to tactics and to what the plans are.”

It’s a life-changing experience to be part of the IPL: Chris Morris Said

After taking his IPL debut in 2013, the 33-year-old all-rounder has represented Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the T20 league. He was released by RCB ahead of the 2021 season, although picking up 11 wickets in 9 games for the permit at a strike-rate of 17.27.

Chris Morris was injured for the first section of IPL 2020. So his fitness concerns could have motivated RCB to let go of the South African player. Still, thinking on his IPL experience, Chris Morris added:

“It has been a little bit of a roller-coaster, of course, I have been disappointed with injury — I will try my best to come back. IPL has been an incredible experience, the opportunity to play in front of a crowd, and to have done that as long as I have is incredible… I am not done. It is a life-changing experience to be part of the IPL. I have nothing but gratitude; hopefully, there’s a new story waiting to be written over the next nine weeks.”
